- Press Release   
That's right, to celebrate the release of the final movie in the Twilight Saga, Essence has released a Trend Edition based on the movies. Whilst I'm not a fan of Twilight at all (sorry to all the Twilight lovers), I really like the idea of these products and, in fact, I'm enjoying using some of them. Let's get into the products that are featured in the collection! 

Loose Pigment Eyeshadows 
Vampire eyes! The loose eyeshadow pigments, available in three dark, almost black shades and one light golden shade, create mysterious and fascinating eye make-up à la Bella Swan. Ranging from a subtle shimmer to metallic to a strong sparkle, the right effect to suit every vampire girl is guaranteed. The pigments can either be used individually or combined. Available in 01 Jacob's Protection, 02 Alice Had a Vision – Again, 03 a Piece of Forever and 04 Edward's Love. RRP - $4.95.
Glitter Eyeliner

The highlight for your vampire look! The liquid glitter eyeliner comes in two mystical and magical colors to whisk you away into the darkest night with its cool, fine glitter pigments. The thin brush allows a particularly accurate eyeliner application. Available in 01 Alice Had a Vision – Again and 02 Jacob's Protection. RRP - $4.50

I received the following products from the collection; Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in #03 a Piece of Forever, Shimmer Powder, Lipgloss in Alice Had a Vision-Again and blush in Renesmee Red.

I received this package yesterday, so I haven't had a chance to try the all the products yet. In saying that, I am a big fan of the Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in a Piece of Forever already. The colour is beautiful and applies so well, adding the nicest colour to the lids. The pigment is a little  chunky, resulting in fallout, yet the colour and price ($4.95) makes that little fact totally irrelevant - It's nothing a tissue won't fix!

You may have noticed that I haven't featured a blush in the swatches. Why? Because it's yours! Well, for one of you. This blush has been added to the growing list of products to be featured in my Christmas giveaway. Stay tuned. There's only 14 day to go until I upload it. 

This limited edition essence make-up collection for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is exclusive to Target and will be available in stores in November and December 2012. 

So, everyone, that's one of the newest collections hitting our shelves from Essence. What do you think of it? Is there any product that you're looking forward to trying? Also, what do you think of  Twilight? Are you as ANTI it as I?

    1. Sorry, Hannah - Thanks for pointing it out! I added it to my giveaway drawer. x

  2. I didn't pick up the blush, it looked too intense for me!

    1. It looks so bright, doesn't it? Whilst I'm sure it's a beautiful colour, I don't have room for it in my current storage so it's a part of my upcoming Christmas giveaway! So excited.
